Long Description:
NRHP Nomination Form

"According to Sanborn maps, the school has concrete-frame construction with brick curtain walls. The front of the school, which faces northwest and has a tripartite composition, has two entrances located at each end of the projecting central bay. A stuccoed or cast-stone water table marks the slightly raised foundation, while another, wider, cast stone, belt course at the first floor delineates the base of the 3-part facade. Cast-stone detailing is used extensively as a decorative detail, especially on the facade. The 6/6 light windows on the second and third floors have cast-stone spandrels or slightly recessed brick panels. Three-light transoms cap each of these window openings. The parapet wall, which crowns the 3-part facade, is elaborately detailed with cast-stone cartouches, stepped coping, and both vertical and horizontal frames. The side elevations display detailing that is similar to, but more subdued than, that seen on the facade."
